Near the end of 2018, the name debutiful popped into my head while sitting in the gray cubicle of my day job. The notion of starting a website dedicated to debut authors had been something I was ruminating over for a while. It wasn’t something I thought I’d do without sitting down to come up with a plan. Then, on December 10, the portmanteau of debut and beautiful arrived.
Thus, my new site was born. I had no plan but quickly moved to make it a reality. I have a vision that will require a lot of work and that will start to roll out over the course of 2019.
The articles I am publishing now will remain consistent: a list of debut books at the beginning of every month to consider reading as well as interviews with as many authors as I can get.
I am still writing for other outlets like Electric Literature and The Millions but you will also see an increase in debutiful interviews coming up.
